Reinvent Themselves

It's interesting watching people on campus. I can definitely spot the second-years. They know what they're doing... have a certain confidence. I, for sure, am not a second-year. Lol.

I was realizing the other day, as we were introducing ourselves in class, just how many people come to community college to reinvent themselves. I know I did, and so many people I've been meeting seem to be doing the same thing. Sure there are the 18-year-old "true freshmen", but there are also quite a few later-in-life students who are here for a purpose and a reason. It's actually quite inspiring.

Anyway, today's photo was taken on a break during my night class last night (Drawing I). We spent the first hour in lecture and then the last part of the class drawing a still-life (I drew a teakettle). I was struck by the quiet beauty of the campus at night, quiet and still. Usually during the day it's anything but. Beautiful sure, but definitely not quiet and still. Lol.

Sorry for the rambling. Coffee is still making it's way to the verbal part of my brain. I'm on a break between classes and ran over to the coffee shop. How very collegiate of me. ;)

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

DIY Art Journal

Hi, my name is Linda and I am a 25 year old law student living in Manhattan. I blog over at My Passion Is... about my life, scrapbooking, DIY crafts, photography, exploring NYC & more. I am honored to be sharing a post with you today on Jen's blog, so thanks for having me!

I recently completed a mini album that I made out of a pasta box so I wanted to share a tutorial with you so you could make your own!

What you need:
empty pasta box [I used a whole foods penne pasta]scrapbook papers & embellishmentsa single hole punchsturdy tape [like packaging tape]a paper cutter and/or scissorssome sort of binding, either binding rings or ribbon First, you are going to flatten out your pasta box.

Then you are going to cut it down to two 6x6 squares [or whatever size album you want to make]. If the box doesn’t fit perfectly in those shapes that’s alright, just piece them together using packaging tape to hold the squares together. Once you cover them it won’t matter anymore. Make sure t…
